Waterfod’s brilliant Bodega! added a sister restaurant, Burzza, right next door to the mother ship, specialising in burgers and pizza, hence that curious name. A wood fired oven and some really fine Italian flour make for lovely thin-based pizzas with a variety of inventive toppings, and the beef for the burgers comes from Tom Kearney’s superb butchers just down the street. What you need to know about Burzza is simply that the restaurant that has been busy since the day it opened and has needed almost no fine tuning at all, a great validation for the experienced Cormac Cronin. Apart from the difficulty in geting a tble, the only other problem is making up your mind: any of the dozen and more pizzas are wickedly good – the Diavolo; the Don Quixote; the Meat Quarter – and the burgers are just as special – the Texas tower; the grazer special; the burzza itself, which is a burfer wrapped calzone style in a pizza base. Great side, great service, and mighty, mighty fun.
